...understandable.

Final verdict on show overall?

Uh, it was outstanding. Can't say it held the same magic it obviously holds for you, but I can tell I'm going to be listening to it a lot in the future.

One thing I loved about the Eyes of the World was that it wasn't ridiculously fast like so many others around this time - it retains a lot of the breezy, jazzy feel from '73-'74 that I felt it lost later on. Also, Jerry's soloing is at least a few notches above his usual brilliance on this and many other tracks (Bertha, Let It Grow, Not Fade Away...)

Thanks!

My thoughts exactly on why I love that Eyes!
